A friend and I went to a show at the Riverfront Convention Center last night and had chosen the Harvey Mansion for dinner before the show based on the interesting sounding menu. I used to make scotch eggs years ago and was very surprised to see them on a restaurant menu. I was a little skeptical about the price when... More

Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to see the actual restaurant and inn upstairs, but unfortunately I did get to see the bar in the basement. So in internet reviews, this whole place gets high marks for sure. The history alone is really cool, and the older I get, the more history means to me. On the outside, it looks... More

The other night we met some friends for drinks in the cozy downstairs bar of the Harvey Mansion. We saw some people who were sitting beside us eating and what they had looked amazing. So we decided to try it. So we went upstairs and got a table and ordered. It was great! Presentation was great, food was great. I... More

My husband and I had a delightful dinner at the Circa 1810 at Harvey Mansion. I had Shrimp and Grits and my husband had Steak Frites. They were both delicious, and nicely presented. The cocktails, dirty martini and whisky sour were perfect.

If you are looking for a drink every 2 hours then this is the place for you- we came on a Tuesday evening, maybe 17 patrons total in the entire building. The bartender has a horrible attitude - don't ask her to do more than 2 things at one time- apparently she can't multi-task....she needs you to come to the... More

This was our best restaurant experience in New Bern. We had reservations that were relatively early. While the main dining room was not altogether full it was already noisy. Our Rob Roy from the adjoining bar was just right and both of us thoroughly enjoyed our kale salads, flatbread pizza and Scotch Eggs (to die for). However, the conversational "din"... More

What we were really looking forward to turned out to be a big disappointment at Harvey Mansion. The atmosphere is not warm and cozy, but we knew that, it's an old mansion with high ceilings. The walls were decorated with paintings that from a distant seemed quite unusual. We were greeted by our server Gabby, who said she was very... More

Came here after the Marine Corps ball with my fiancé and friends and had an amazing time. Atmosphere is great and the service and drinks were even better! Definitely will be going back soon!

Tried out the Circa 1810 downstairs at the Harvey Mansion. Looks like a English pub. The food is a limited menu but you must try the Scotch Egg. As I am from England this is as authentic as it gets. Staff are fantastic.
